Speaking at his weekly pre-match press conference, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Samuel Eto’o is unavailable for the visit of Southampton on Sunday. The game will also come too soon for David Luiz.
Eto’o, who went off injured in the first half against Basel on Tuesday night, has a grade one muscular injury and will be out for approximately two weeks.
David Luiz trained with the squad for the first time today but the manager said he is not in a condition to feature this weekend.
We’ll have a full report from the manager’s press conference up on the official Chelsea website shortly.
